O2 and Vodafone currently offer 4G across the city and Perthshire but many other popular communication companies are still yet to offer it.
After reporting in September, Three and EE are to consider 4G across the new city. An insider from EE telecommunications group had announced 4G will be introduced fully across Tayside by early next year.
This also comes a time when Virgin Media and BT are to upgrade Perth’s fibre optic connections by 2016/17.
The Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband initiative consists of two projects – one covering the Highlands and Islands area and the other covering the rest of Scotland. Both projects are being delivered on the ground by BT, which is investing £126m in the programme.
The fibre connection at Auchterarder is one of the first of a programme of installations throughout Perth and Kinross from the £410 million Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband partnership. Perth and Kinross Council has contributed £1.2 million towards the project.
